How do you spend each second daily? Time is the most valuable thing a man can spend. The 86,400 seconds you get in the morning is gone in the evening. You can’t use any of it in advance and you can’t pile it up. You can’t live in the future. You can’t live in the past. You can live in the present, using the seconds available to you, right now.

The top professional and successful athletes, will have every hour, every minute and second planned out for optimal performance and success. You have an option to get up early in the morning to get just five minutes more practice in, to stop watching one of your TV programs, and not have that desert, to not berate yourself for missing that shot, and the list goes on.

Every athlete wants to gain that competitive edge. What separates the great athletes from the good ones is how those 86,400 seconds are invested daily! Playing more games and traveling hundreds of miles to find better competition will not make you a better athlete. You first need to invest the time developing athletic skills such as: acceleration, deceleration, jumping and landing, and changing direction, etc. These skills will help you develop your athleticism and set you up for what is referred to as long term athletic development.
